Philippians 4:21  Colossians 1:20

21 Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me greet you.

22 All the asaints greet you, and especially 1those of Caesar’s household.

23 The 1agrace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your 2bspirit.


1 1Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus through the 2awill of God, and bTimothy the brother,

2 To the 1asaints in Colossae and faithful brothers in Christ: bGrace to you and peace from God our cFather.

3 We give thanks to God, the 1Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always concerning you,

4 Because we have heard of your 1afaith in Christ Jesus and the 1blove which you have unto all the saints

5 Because of the 1ahope 2laid up for you in the heavens, of which you heard before in the bword of the 3truth of the gospel,

6 Which has come to you, even as it is also in all the world, bearing fruit and growing, as also in you, since the day you heard and knew the 1agrace of God in 2btruth;

7 Even as you learned from aEpaphras, our beloved fellow slave, who is a faithful 1bminister of Christ on your behalf,

8 Who also has made known to us your alove in the Spirit.

9 Therefore we also, since the day we heard of it, do not cease apraying and asking on your behalf that you may be filled with the full knowledge of 1His bwill in all 2spiritual cwisdom and understanding,

10 To 1walk worthily of the Lord to please Him 2in all things, 3bearing fruit in every good work and growing by the full 4knowledge of God,

11 Being aempowered with all 1power, according to the 2bmight of His glory, unto all endurance and long-suffering with joy,

12 Giving thanks to the Father, who has 1qualified you for a share of the 2allotted aportion of the saints in the 3blight;

13 Who 1delivered us out of the authority of 2adarkness and transferred us into the bkingdom of the 3cSon of His love,

14 In whom we have 1aredemption, the 2bforgiveness of sins;

15 Who is the 1aimage of the binvisible God, the 2cFirstborn of all creation,

16 Because 1in Him all things were created, in the heavens and on the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether 2thrones or 3alordships or rulers or authorities; all things have been created 4bthrough Him and 5unto Him.

17 And He is 1before all things, and all things 2acohere in Him;

18 And He is the aHead of the bBody, the church; He is the cbeginning, the 1dFirstborn from the dead, that He Himself might have the first place in all things;

19 For in Him 1all the 2afullness was pleased to dwell

20 And 1through Him to areconcile 2ball things to 3Himself, 4chaving made peace through the dblood of His cross — 1through Him, whether the ethings on the earth or the things in the 5heavens.

Philippians 3:17  Philippians 4:20

17 Be aimitators together of me, brothers, and observe those who thus walk even as you have us as a bpattern.

18 For 1many walk, of whom I have told you often and now tell you even aweeping, that they are the enemies of the 2bcross of Christ,

19 1Whose end is adestruction, whose god is their bstomach, and whose glory is in their cshame, who dset their minds on 2earthly things.

20 For our 1acommonwealth exists in the 2bheavens, from which also we eagerly cawait a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,

21 Who will 1atransfigure the 2bbody of our humiliation to be cconformed to the 3body of His dglory, 4according to His operation by which He is able even to esubject all things to Himself.


1 So then, my brothers, beloved and alonged for, my 1bjoy and ccrown, 2in the same way dstand firm in the Lord, beloved.

2 I exhort Euodias, and I exhort Syntyche, to 1athink the same thing in the Lord.

3 Yes, I ask you also, genuine 1yokefellow, 2assist them, since they 3contended with me in the gospel, as well as with Clement and the rest of my afellow workers, whose bnames are in the 4cbook of life.

4 1aRejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.

5 1Let your 2forbearance be known to all men. The Lord is 3anear.

6 In nothing 1be aanxious, but in everything, by 2bprayer and petition 3with cthanksgiving, let your requests be made known 4to God;

7 And the 1apeace of God, which bsurpasses every man’s understanding, will 2cguard your 3hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brothers, what things are 1true, what things are 2dignified, what things are 3righteous, what things are 4apure, what things are 5lovely, what things are 6bwell spoken of, if there is any 7cvirtue and if any 8praise, 9take account of these things.

9 The things which you have also learned and 1areceived and heard and 2seen in me, 3practice these things; and the 4bGod of peace will be with you.

10 But I arejoiced in the Lord greatly because now at length you have caused your thinking for me to 1blossom anew; for which matter you had indeed taken thought, but lacked opportunity.

11 Not that I speak according to alack, for I have learned, in whatever circumstances I am, to be 1bcontent.

12 I know also how to be 1abased, and I know how to 2abound; 3in everything and in all things 4I have learned the secret both to be 5filled and to ahunger, both to 6abound and to 7black.

13 I am able to do all things 1in Him who 2aempowers me.

14 Nevertheless you did well to have 1afellowship with me in my 2affliction.

15 And you yourselves also know, Philippians, that in the beginning of the agospel, when I bwent out from cMacedonia, no church had 1fellowship with me in the 2daccount of 3giving and receiving except 4you only;

16 For even in aThessalonica you sent both once and again to my bneed.

17 Not that I seek the 1gift, but I seek the 2afruit which increases to your 3baccount.

18 But I have received in full all things and abound; I have been 1filled, receiving from aEpaphroditus the 2things from you, a 3sweet-smelling savor, an acceptable 4bsacrifice, well-pleasing to God.

19 And 1my God will 2afill 3your every need 4according to His riches, 5in glory, 6in Christ Jesus.

20 Now to 1our God and Father be the 2aglory forever and ever. 3Amen.

Philippians 3:1  Philippians 3:16

1 Finally, my brothers, arejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, for me it is not 1irksome, but for you it is 2safe.

2 1Beware of the 2adogs, beware of the 2evil bworkers, beware of the 2cconcision.

3 For we are the 1acircumcision, the ones who 2serve by the Spirit of God and bboast in Christ Jesus and 3have no confidence in the 4cflesh,

4 Though I myself have something to be confident of in the aflesh as well. If any other man thinks that he has confidence in the flesh, I more:

5 Circumcised the 1aeighth day; of the 2brace of Israel, of the 3tribe of Benjamin, a 4cHebrew born of Hebrews; as to the 5dlaw, a 6ePharisee;

6 As to 1azeal, bpersecuting the church; as to the crighteousness which is in the law, become 2dblameless.

7 1But what 2things were gains to me, these I have counted as 3loss 4on account of Christ.

8 1But moreover I 2also count aall things to be loss on account of the 3excellency of the bknowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, 4on account of whom I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as 5refuse that I may 6cgain Christ

9 And be 1found in Him, 2not having my own arighteousness which is 3out of the law, but that which is through 4bfaith in Christ, the 5crighteousness which is out of God and 6based on faith,

10 To 1aknow Him and the 2bpower of His resurrection and the 3cfellowship of His sufferings, being 4dconformed to His death,

11 If perhaps I may 1attain to the 2aout-resurrection from the dead.

12 1Not that I 2have already aobtained or 3am already 4bperfected, but I 5cpursue, if even I may 6lay hold of 7that for which dI also have been 8laid hold of by Christ Jesus.

13 Brothers, I do 1not account of myself to have laid hold; but one thing I do: 2Forgetting the things which are abehind and 3stretching forward to the things which are before,

14 I 1apursue toward the 2goal for the 3bprize to which God in Christ Jesus has 4ccalled me upward.

15 Let us therefore, as many as are 1afull-grown, have 2bthis mind; and if in anything you are cotherwise minded, this also God will 3dreveal to you.

16 1Nevertheless 2whereunto we have attained, by the 3same rule let us 4awalk.

Philippians 2:5  Philippians 2:30

5 1Let athis mind be in you, which was also in 2Christ Jesus,

6 Who, 1aexisting in the 2bform of God, did 3not consider being cequal with God a treasure to be grasped,

7 But 1aemptied Himself, taking the 2form of a bslave, 3cbecoming in the 4likeness of men;

8 And 1being found in 2fashion as a man, He 3humbled Himself, becoming aobedient even unto death, and that the 4death of a bcross.

9 Therefore also God highly 1aexalted Him and 2bestowed on Him the 3name which is babove every name,

10 That 1in the name of Jesus aevery knee should 2bow, of those who are 3in bheaven and 4on earth and 5under the earth,

11 And every tongue should 1openly confess that Jesus Christ is 2aLord 3to the bglory of God the Father.

12 1So then, my beloved, even as you have always 2obeyed, not as in my presence only but now much rather in my absence, 3work out your own 4asalvation with 5bfear and trembling;

13 1For it is 2God who 3aoperates in you both the 4willing and the 5working for His 6bgood pleasure.

14 Do all things without 1amurmurings and breasonings

15 That you may be ablameless and 1guileless, 2children of God 3bwithout blemish in the midst of a ccrooked and 4perverted generation, among whom you shine as 5dluminaries in the 6world,

16 1Holding forth the 2aword of life, so that I may have a 3bboast in the 4cday of Christ that I did not drun in vain nor elabor in vain.

17 But even if I am being apoured out as a 1bdrink offering upon the 2csacrifice and 3service of your 4faith, I 5drejoice, and I 6rejoice together with you all.

18 And in like manner you also rejoice, and you 1rejoice together with me.

19 But I hope in the Lord Jesus to send aTimothy to you shortly, that I also may be 1encouraged by knowing the things concerning you.

20 For I have no one 1alike-souled who will genuinely care for what concerns you;

21 For all aseek their own things, not the things of 1Christ Jesus.

22 But you know his 1approvedness, that as a achild with a father he has 2bserved with me unto the cgospel.

23 Him therefore I hope to send immediately, as soon as I see how things go with me.

24 But I trust in the Lord that I myself also will acome shortly.

25 But I considered it necessary to send to you aEpaphroditus, my 1brother and bfellow worker and cfellow soldier, and your 2dapostle and 3minister to my eneed,

26 Since he alonged after you all and was greatly distressed because you heard that he had become sick;

27 For indeed he had become asick, near to death, but God had mercy on him, and not on him only but also on me that I might not have sorrow upon sorrow.

28 I have sent him therefore the more eagerly, so that when you see him again, you may arejoice and I may be less sorrowful.

29 aReceive him therefore in the Lord with all bjoy, and chold such in honor,

30 Because for the work of Christ he drew near unto death, 1arisking his 2life, that he might bfill up your lack of 3service toward me.

Philippians 1:11  Philippians 2:4

11 Being filled with the 1afruit of righteousness, which is bthrough Jesus Christ, to the cglory and praise of God.

12 Now I want you to know, brothers, that the things concerning me have turned out rather to the 1advancement of the agospel,

13 So that my abonds have become manifest as being 1in Christ among the whole 2Praetorian guard and to all the rest.

14 And most of the brothers, being confident in the Lord because of my bonds, are more exceedingly bold to speak the word of God without fear.

15 1Some preach Christ even because of aenvy and 2strife, and 3some also because of good will,

16 These out of love, knowing that I am set for the adefense of the gospel.

17 But the others announce Christ out of 1selfish ambition, not purely, thinking to raise up 2affliction in my abonds.

18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truthfulness, Christ is announced; and in this I 1arejoice; yes, and I will rejoice;

19 For I know that for me this will turn out to 1asalvation through 2your bpetition and the 3bountiful csupply of the 4dSpirit of Jesus Christ,

20 According to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I will be put to ashame, but with all boldness, as always, even now Christ will be 1magnified bin my body, whether through life or through cdeath.

21 For to me, to 1alive is Christ and to die is 2gain.

22 But if I am to live in the flesh, if this to me is afruit for my work, then I do not know what I will choose.

23 But I am constrained between the two, having the desire to adepart and be 1with Christ, for this is far better;

24 But to remain in the flesh is more necessary for 1your sake.

25 And being confident of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all for your 1progress and ajoy of 2the bfaith,

26 That your 1boast may abound in Christ Jesus in me through my coming again to you.

27 Only, conduct yourselves in a manner aworthy of the bgospel of Christ, that whether coming and seeing you or being absent, I may hear of the things concerning you, that you cstand firm in one spirit, with 1done soul 2estriving together along with 3the faith of the gospel,

28 And in nothing being frightened by the opposers, which is to them a aproof of their 1bdestruction, but of your 2salvation, and that from God;

29 Because to you it has been graciously granted on behalf of Christ not only to believe 1into Him but also to 2asuffer on His behalf,

30 Having the same astruggle which you saw in 1me and now hear to be in me.


1 1If there is therefore any encouragement in Christ, if any 2aconsolation of love, if any bfellowship of spirit, if any 3ctenderheartedness and dcompassions,

2 1Make my 2ajoy full, that you 3bthink the same thing, having the 4same love, 5cjoined in soul, 3thinking 6the one thing,

3 1Doing nothing by way of 2aselfish ambition nor by way of bvainglory, but in 3clowliness of 4mind considering one another more excellent than yourselves;

4 Not regarding each his own 1virtues, but each the 1virtues of others also.
